A Toast to Rio

October 7, 2009 By: Nightclub & Bar


While Chicagoans are astounded that the Windy City did not snag the 2016 Summer Olympics, cachaca marketers and fans are celebrating Rio de Janeiro’s success in the bidding. The Brazilian spirit will undoubtedly get a boost from the worldwide attention to the city, and several brand marketers are offering some celebratory sips.
